Guns N’ Roses is out. They’ve announced a Wrigley show for July 26.
Yup, that leaked out last week after a radio contest went live early.
The list of viable rock headliners is dwindling. Seems like the best options for 1-4 billing are Pearl Jam, Rage, Foo Fighters, and RHCP? I could also see Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant and Vampire Weekend (still feels too soon) getting consideration as North Side headliners.
Not that I ever thought they’d play Lolla but Dead and Co is out with 2 Chicago dates July 24th and 25th. Also The Rolling Stones skip Chicago but it seems they’re just hitting up markets they didn’t do last year.
Of Monsters and Men locked in Thursday at Lolla. Wallows, Orville Peck probably from Friday too.
Sunday could bring Leon Bridges, Khruangbin, Mt. Joy
Leon is opening for Maroon 5 at Wrigley in June. May not totally rule him out, but it makes it less of a sure thing.
Agreed, but ive seen weirder situations from opening acts to still play Lolla. I think Future opened for Drake like 2 weeks before Lollapalooza and still played so who knows I guess. Wrigley definitely doesn't help though
Yup in line for that 2nd show. First one was a shitshow.
Edit: Aaaand just snagged 2 floor seats. I'm sure some people are pretty pissed about that. Splurging for upper decks for Tuesday and then poof 15 mins later you can get floors for basically the same price Wednesday.
